Step 2: Submit your Availability

First, it's important to understand the difference between Availability and Time Off requests in 7shifts:

Availability: This is how you communicate to your manager which time of the day, or which days of the week you prefer not to work due to classes, other jobs, etc. 

Time OffUse this to ask your manager for days you need to take off (i.e. vacation or personal days).

There are two types of Availability:

1. Repeating: This Availability will carry on indefinitely, until it is removed or a change is made. Use this to note what your availability typically looks like througout the year.

2. Weekly: If you already have a Repeating Availability, Weekly Availability will override this. You'll be able to choose the start and end weeks that the Weekly Availability will apply to. You'll use this in times where you need to make a short term change to your Availability, like when you have a break from school.


Here are the steps to submit your Availability:

1. Go to Manage > Availability in the top menu.

*Mobile app: go to Availability in the side menu.

2. Click the green '+ Add' button and select whether you are submitting your Repeating Availability (which will repeat from week to week) or your Weekly Availability (for a specific date range). 

 

*Note: If you can't select Weekly Availability, it means your manager has disabled this option. 

From there, select which days you are unable to work, or are only partially availabile. Once you are finished, click 'Submit' and your manager will be notified.
